Mother’s Day on the Farm

Along with the usual Mother’s Day celebration with 3 generations of mothers, we also celebrated Jessica’s FIVE YEARS SOBER on Mother’s Day! Richard smoked great meat and beans, and great friends came to share the day.

Putting water in the pan for moisture.

Put the meat on a little after 7 am

Checking on progress

Put the beans on at 10 am

Checking on the meat

Meat and beans cooking away!

The spread!!!!

Our official family party cake, German Chocolate for Jessica’s 5 years sober.

Most of the group enjoying the visiting.

Susan tried to light the candles, but the wind was too strong.

The Group Shot!

Moonrise with Sunset

I went back and forth between the sunset on the NW side of the pier and the moonrise on the SE side of the pier.

Sunset over UCSB

We made it to Goleta just before sunset. Our hotel guy told us the best sunset position on a pier! So, we got the gear and headed to the pier and got some nice sunset photos!

Santa Cruz Natural Bridges

Even though Richard and I have been to Santa Cruz several times, somehow we’ve missed this bit of the western coast where this lovely Natural Bridge is! So, here’s some pictures of it, the lighthouse, and also some surfers. Some of the pictures are also with a slow shutter speed to blur the waves.

Bean Hollow State Beach

Our first stop was our favorite beach just south of San Francisco, Bean Hollow State Beach. It’s also a free beach, so that’s another reason we like it!

First I tried using my new ND (dark) filter and slow shutter speeds to blur our the waves. Then I shot some more traditional shots. Thanks to Richard for the shot of me!
